ZEKE - Age 7
Bible - Abeka Bible Reader
Math - We're finishing up our Houghton Mifflin First Grade workbook & practice book and have recently implemented Math Made Easy. Hopefully in our second semester we'll be moving on to Primary Math 1B from Singapore Math.
English: Reading/Phonics - For reading, we're using Academic Success for All Learners Little Books, our library of books, and the actual library. (You can read about our success with Little Books HERE!) For Phonics, we're continuing with our Adventures in Phonics workbook, Dolch words/sight word flashcards I made, The Reading Game and Reading Kingdom.
Science - We're using Scott Foresman Science, Grade 2.
History & Geography - We're currently using Abeka's Our America, Grade 2. Each week we're checking out a different book (or books!) from the library on whatever historical place, person, or time period we're studying. History is Zeke's favorite subject so we read a LOT of books about it.
Tonight at the Bright Ideas Press Twitter party I won this Geography Prize Package (which includes WonderMaps, Hands on Geography, and The Ultimate Geography and Timeline Guide) so we'll definitely be incorporating those things in soon!
Spelling/Handwriting - We're choosing "words of the week" to study and I will hopefully soon be starting weekly spelling tests. However, I'd like to focus more on handwriting before we worry too much about spelling. So we're continuing to work on Zeke's handwriting through worksheets, printing practice, dry erase boards, and whatever other creative ideas come to me...probably via Pinterest. :)
Music - I am attempting to teach Zeke the piano and give him some beginning vocal lessons - I have many books I'm using, though so I'm not going to list them all. I'm also trying to practice more myself!
Art - We're finishing up an ARTistic Pursuits book and will soon be starting a once a month Art Club one of our local homeschool families is starting up. We'll be working on a different project and/or learning about a different technique each month, and will also be attending several field trips.
Physical Education - We get to review Family Time Fitness for the Crew this year (review coming soon!) and upon being chosen for it, I realized that I'd never really considered having a set PE time in our schedules. (Probably because I'm a lazy gal and was never a fan of PE...lol.) In addition to PE time, Zeke will be starting soccer here in a few weeks and then baseball in the spring.
Other - I also have a Big First Grade Workbook, assorted flashcards and workbooks, and will be working in The Old Schoolhouse Review Crew materials as we are blessed with them. We are tentatively planning several field trips for later in the year with other local homeschool families to some different museums and places of interest.
